The Arsht Center went virtual with the launch of Arsht@Home, a new at-home online program which celebrates the arts with free educational and entertaining content to inspire creativity while keeping the community connected and active. Arts lovers from South Florida and beyond can access Arsht@Home content directly on the Center’s website at arshtcenter.org/arshtathome and via its social media channels (@arshtcenter).
Arsht@Home offers free, hyperlocal content for arts enthusiasts of all ages. Exciting options include creating art with family and friends with the help of local teaching artists as well as watching Miami’s talented actors, singers and musicians perform. Additional offerings include resources and thrilling performances from the Center’s resident companies and arts partners, Spotify playlists curated by artists and Arsht Center staffers especially made for Arsht@Home, free 1:1 professional development training with the Center’s HR team, and much more.
“The arts are a vital part of all our lives and we at the Arsht Center take the responsibility very seriously. Despite this intermission from life as we know it, our staff has been diligently working on ways to keep our community connected to the performing arts, to Miami’s artistic community and to the Arsht Center. With Arsht@Home, we have found a way to virtually connect and engage our community by providing a platform for local artists to keep people of all ages entertained and engaged in the arts from home. Offering arts experiences to all is part of the Arsht Center’s DNA and we will continue to do that virtually until we can, once again, gather in person,” said Johann Zietsman, president and CEO of the Arsht Center.
To enjoy a variety of Arsht@Home digital content, everyone is encouraged to follow the Arsht Center on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, as well as visit arshtcenter.org/arshtathome to sign up for the program’s newsletter to receive weekly updates.
